DVD equipped cars

Hello,
DVD equipped cars really are out there….. I got upgraded into 2 almost back to back. The first was a GMC Arcadia out of BUF, start of October (YL on key, I had booked SFAR) As well as the DVD it was an ST1, which includes Bose speakers, power tailgate, rear view camera and lots of good stuff!
The other upgrade came just over a week later when I was nice to the agent struggling with a computer crash at The Hard Rock, Orlando. Once he had the paperwork organised he bumped me up from a LCAR to an Infiniti QX56. It had over 30,000 miles clocked but was still much better than a Towncar :-) It also had DVD with screens in the front seat headrests and 2 wireless headsets. There was only the vehicle number on the key so no class info – sorry.
I really appreciate the effort you put in to updating this fleet list and hope this little bit of info helps.

Thanks so much for that! Good to know the YLs actually do exist I was going to do an update last night but figured I would wait until I returned a car later today to do it.

List Update 10/29/12

Fleet list updated as of October 29, 2012:

  • Subaru Outback (Q4/IFAR) also tagged Q
  • GMC Acadia (L4/FRAR) also tagged YL (for higher-trim models with DVD entertainment system)
  • Ford Expedition added to list under 4WD/AWD Large SUV (FFAR) category, tagged T
  • Porsche Cayenne Turbo added to list under Prestige Collection, tagged I6 (also added to code listing)
  • Nissan Cube removed from list (last seen in 2011 est.)

I'm not really sure if the Cayenne Turbo is officially a Prestige vehicle or not, but unless somebody knows otherwise (is it treated as a Hertz Supercar?) I'm sticking it in there for now.

I also wanted to mention that Sunday morning when I returned a Jeep Liberty to ROC (before the location was open), I was horrified park next to a 2011 Impala LT It had out-of-state plates and I don't even want to fathom how many miles it may have. I'm sure you all know I am one of the few who like the 2012 Impala... the 2011 one has to go

New car!

I try to keep updates to once a week, but I'll make an exception when I see something like this on the site:



LXAR - "Special" category

And someone's been messing with categories more than I do! A whole bunch of cars have moved around.

-J.

Wait a minute... "or Similar"?!?!?

Got a Jetta for the first time in a few years from my HLE. It's already on the list there, it's a corporate HLE, it was a 2012 Jetta 2.5 SE, and it was tagged and on the receipt as YC. Appeared to have more than one, plus a Golf was there too, different. Oh and a first for me: there was a dealer mark on the thing. It said Ganley, which is a dealer in Bedford, OH, near Cleveland. Had OH tags.

FFAR vs PFAR?

Hello

Traveling with a couple of friends to Las Vegas in december and I have booked a 4WD/AWD Premium Extra Capacity SUV (T6, PFAR)

Compared to 4WD/AWD Large SUV (T, FFAR) will it only be a bit larger or will it "premium" of some sort? I.e. better trim, sunroof etc. etc.?

Has anybody else rented a PFAR in Vegas and know what I might get?

Have Hertz Gold membership, for what its worth

Nick

I know I did an update two days ago, but I noticed a couple of interesting things that I was hoping to get some feedback on, so here's what's changed in the fleet list updated as of November 7, 2012:

  • Mercedes-Benz C Class - noted that the C300 is one of the available models
  • Infiniti FX37 and Cadillac SRX now co-reservable (bookable as "Infiniti FX37/Cadillac SRX")

Regarding the Infiniti-Caddy combo: is that a good thing? There are ride reports for both the FX35 and SRX4 (courtesy of drzoidberg ) but I'm curious if you guys think they are similar enough that they can be grouped like this. Would you be happy if you wanted a Cadillac and got an Infiniti, or vice versa?

I personally am not sure, but the PFAR should be larger than the FFAR. How many people are you actually traveling with? The Chevy Suburban is a monstrous vehicle, and will be tough to park on the street and could cost more if you have to pay for a garage. There are some reports of nicer PFARs than FFARs, although there are some vehicles like the YT-tagged Tahoe (FFAR) that are fully loaded. Of course, YMMV.

Wow, you are scaring me, jzweighaft, haha! Monstrous vehicle?

We will 5 adults probably so maybe its a bit big

2 years back I had the Cadillac Escalade (not the ESV) for a 3 week rental and I found that one to be easy enough to drive/handle.

Are the Suburban and Yukon much bigger than the Escalade? Is the Tahoe better for 5 adults perhaps?

The Suburban is a stretched Yukon/Tahoe. An Escalade is a tarted up Yukon. An Escalade ESV is a tarted up Suburban.

Thanks for the quick reply!
So I guess that if I liked the Escalade the Suburban wont feel too big?

Wheelbase is a foot longer, so you need more room to turn, etc. But tons more room for baggage. But you are in the West, no? Place is built for the thing, there.
